CM Punk Gone From WWE?
Former WWE Heavyweight Champion CM Punk reportedly walked out on the company due to his disappointment with the direction of the wrestling promotion’s storylines heading into Wrestlemania, their biggest show of the year. According to reports, he walked out of last Monday’s episode of RAW after telling WWE’s owner, Vince McMahon that he was “going home.”
The immediate question everyone has is, “how real is this?” Is it true? Did he really walk out of a huge Wrestlemania payday? Is this a cover-up for him taking time off to recuperate from an injury? Or is this part of an elaborate storyline…a “work” in wrestle-speak?
